operational details conducted in surveillance but some analysts and critics now wonder if president obama really was in the dark about these nsa tappings of other leaders. could this be part of a bigger pattern within his administration? recall last week dr. sanjay gupta asked health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius when the president knew about the debacle with the federal obama care website. >> do you know when he first knew that there was a problem? >> well, i think it became clear fairly early on. the first couple of days -- >> so not before that, though? not before october 1st? >> there is, one could argue, quite a difference between plausible deniability and being an absentee landlord. now, over the weekend, a german newspaper reported that the nsa may have been tapping angela merkel's phone for more than a decade, even before she became german chancellor. it may have been going on throughout president obama's whole first term without him knowing about it or finding out about it, but it actually would have started during the bush/cheney administration. earlier today i

last week, iran could produce enough weapons grade highly enriched uranium in as little as a month. that's vastly shorter than what the obama administration has repeatedly said it would take iran a year to have enough uranium for a bomb. we've been hearing those estimates for years now. david allbright, former weapons inspector, concludes iran would have to eliminate more than half of the 19,000 centrifuges to extend the time it would take it to build a bomb to six months. jon: why are we hearing so much about the capacity now? why is that the focus? >> essentially because iran began high level talks with the u.n. watchdog, the iaea in vienna today. u.s. began negotiations with iran with the nuclear program october 15. their next meeting is going to be next month in geneva. the next meeting with the u.s., the white house has been trying to convince congress in the process not to add to u.s. sanctions against iran while they negotiate. the sanctions have hit iran's oil industry particularly hard, cutting revenues in half. anti-american billboards have created quite a stern in iran a
